NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Jill McGlone, who was paid by a Norfolk agency despite not showing up for work for 12 years, filed for voluntary Chapter 7 bankruptcy Monday.
CSB workers signed paperwork enabling McGlone to continue getting salary and benefits from 1998 to 2010. The total payments added up to more than $300,000.
A special grand jury convened in March 2012 to probe an investigation into the McGlone case. In 2011, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services paid back more than $186,000 as their share of McGlone's salary.
According to a 16-page civil lawsuit , McGlone was suspended from her work at the Community Services Board twice. The first time was in April 1998 for having a weapon at work, and she was suspended again two months later for disclosing confidential information about a CSB client. She was placed on paid suspension.
